“This Is Us” New Season to Include More Pittsburgh & Steelers

The show is particularly popular in the Pittsburgh area because many of its flashbacks are set in the city and characters Rebecca and Jack Pearson are card-carrying members of Steelers nation.

When the hit Pittsburgh-based drama "This Is Us" returns on Sept. 26, expect more tears, more reveals — and more Steelers.

Post-Gazette TV writer Rob Owen, reporting from the Television Critics Association summer press tour, says the show's second season will bring viewers to Pittsburgh once again. A flashback to a Steelers Super Bowl will figure into one of the episodes, show creator Dan Fogelman told the PG.

“I’d love to get to a Steelers game to film," Fogelman says. "We’ve developed a relationship with the Steelers. We’re in the early stages of talks.”

Also revealed at the press tour was that fans would see more of character William (Ron Cephas Jones), who died late in season 1, in flashbacks, and learn more of the story behind Jack's (Milo Ventimiglia's) death.

“This is Us” was named outstanding new program at the Television Critics Association annual awards Saturday night. 

The drama has also earned 10 Emmy nominations, including one for best drama.
